When Amber Hewerdine consults a hypnotherapist as a last resort, she doesn’t expect that anything much will change. She doesn’t expect it to help with her chronic insomnia or to hear herself, under hypnosis, saying words that mean nothing to her.

“Kind, cruel, kind of cruel.” Words she has seen somewhere before, if only she could remember where. She also doesn’t expect to be arrested two hours later in connection with the brutal murder of Katharine Allen, a woman she’s never heard of.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The power this novel packs derives from narrators that play fast and loose with what they know…The solution is a stunner.”

    Boston Globe

  • “Another compulsive book from Hannah, to be gulped down with all the lights on and someone to grab when the sense of menace grows too great.”

    Observer (London)

  • “Sophie Hannah has quickly established herself as a doyenne of the ‘home horror’ school of psychological tension, taking domestic situations and wringing from them dark, gothic thrills.”

    Financial Times (London)

  • “A brilliantly executed psychological suspense with a complex plot brought to a horribly logical conclusion.”
